Hygiene Appointments

Dr. Kirchner and our dental hygiene team in Seattle help keep our patients’ smiles healthy and bright with thorough exams and cleanings. A hygiene appointment in our office is unique because it is tailored to your individual needs. We plan each appointment in a way that allows us to get to know you on a personal level.

Keeping Our Patients’ Smile as Healthy as Ever!

We’re pleased to offer a hygiene experience that encompasses outstanding care, high-end techniques, and the most contemporary equipment available in dentistry. By implementing the latest diagnostic tools such as digital x-rays, the Diagnodent laser caries detector tool, and Velscope oral cancer screenings, our team is able to spot any trouble areas in your mouth before they become more serious. When complications are spotted in their early stages, treatment becomes less complicated, more cost-effective, and highly successful.

Based on your exam, our hygienists will determine what type of cleaning is appropriate for you. This may include ultrasonic cleaning and scaling of the teeth and gums, removing surface stains on the teeth, fluoride application, and polishing the teeth to give them a healthy shine. If additional concerns are noticed during your exam, we will present treatment options and offer advice so you can make informed decisions about your oral health.

Our team is able to help patients gain and maintain optimum oral health through comfortable, state-of-the-art appointments in dental hygiene. Seattle, WA dentist Dr. Christine Kirchner and her caring hygiene team would love to help you meet your oral health goals. Contact our office to schedule your comprehensive exam today.
